Ivan Perisic: Wanted by Liverpool

Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic is excited to have been linked with a summer move to Chelsea, according to his agent.

With Antonio Conte set to take over at Stamford Bridge in the summer, Chelsea have been linked with a host of players from Serie A, including Roma trio Miralem Pjanic, Radja Nainggolan and Kostas Manolas.

Roma president James Pallotta has “categorically” ruled out selling Pjanic to the Blues, however, while fresh reports suggest the west Londoners could face competition from Arsenal to sign Manolas.

There is better news on Perisic, though.

The 27-year-old’s agent Tonci Martic told Goal: “To be linked with a club like Chelsea and a manager like Antonio Conte is very exciting for Perisic.

“The Premier League is the best league in the world and Chelsea is a massive club so we would happily talk about it, but a deal is far at this moment.”

Separate reports, meanwhile, claim Chelsea have put Eden Hazard up for sale, while Diego Costa will apparently consider a move to China if Atletico Madrid cannot find the money to sign him.
